If You Are Bored With LIfe...

If you are bored with life, if you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals. - Lou Holtz

You want to set a goal that is big enough that in the process of achieving it you become someone worth becoming. - Jim Rohn

2009 Goals
I have some very specific goals this year so I thought I would put some out here:

*I will finish the mud run in Feb (on my 41st birthday) under 2:38:00.
*I will be at 10%BF on June 13th, 2009 and on that same day...
*I will finish the Blue Lake Oly Triathlon under 2:40:00.
*I will raise $4000.00 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by June 15, 2009.
*I will finish Pac Crest 1/2 IronMan under 6:45:00 on June 27th, 2009.
*I will obtain my personal training certificate by the end of Summer 2009.
*I will run a sub 4 hour marathon at the Portland Marathon on October 4, 2009.
*I will be Crossfit certified by 12/31/09.

The above goals are all leading to some significant goals for 2010 and I know that I WILL achieve them all with persistence.

Thanks girls!

Jess- your goals are I'm sure the best ones of anyone this year! Welcome baby!

Krissa said...

Awesome goals.

I am going to get Crossfit Cert too. I wanted to in January since it is really close to home but it costs 1000 bucks and I need to save up a bit first.

My husband is an Iron Man and is doing a few smaller tri races this year too. "You people" amaze me. I have considered training for one of those because I am always soooo impressed by my husband but I think I would rather be on the sidelines cheering him on. :)

Krissa - you should totally start doing tris!! They are so much fun. Just start with sprints and see how you like it. I was so afraid for so long to try one and when I did, I was hooked! As I'm sure you've noticed while on the sidelines, there are ALL sorts of people doing these events and it is not only for the "elite". One of my greatest fears was the swim leg and at my first official tri, I got to watch the first couple of legs head out and I saw people doing back stroke, breast stroke, just plain floating on their backs while they gathered their senses and I realized that I was not the only one who felt like they didn't belong there. If you go into it looking at it as a good fun time, you'll really have fun!!!...and you'll meet the greatest people!

Tri it!

Holy GOALS!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it! I agree with Krissa, You people (TRI-Ath) are freakin amazing!!! Well, just marathoners in general amaze me, but throw in a swim & bike! Wow!

Yep, we're still getting snow here, too! Looks like your kids & pup enjoy it! Hey, are Huskies as great as they look? My hubs has been interested in the for ever........thinking springtime...

Have a WARM day!!!!!!

Julie said...

Em - Huskies are GREAT!! for families who are active! They MUST have their runs, walks, and much activity. They are diggers and escape artists so you need to 1) do as I mentioned above...keep them happy with lots of runs and walks and 2) have a secure yard for them. They are also diggers, so you might get lucky like us and only end up with the occasional hole or two in the yard, but some will really go at it! They are wonderful, very smart pets and they LOVE their people!!
